Mesabi Metallics donates to Greenway Area Community Fund

The Greenway Area Community Fund (GACF) held its 4th annual Oktoberfest on October 7th, 2023, at the Marble City Hall. Oktoberfest is a lively community event that brings people together from far and wide to raise money for the endowment fund. The event featured delicious food, beverages, live music, a grape stomp, bean bag tournament, and raffles.

Oktoberfest is GACF’s main fundraiser which allows the organization to give back to the community. 14 grants were allocated in 2023 for a total of 36 grants dispersed since 2020. This year’s event raised over $12,000 for the organization, said GACF member Casey Venema. “We were asking for donations for our event to cover the cost of advertising and a large outdoor tent among other things. We were also looking for basket raffle prizes, gift certificates, and cash donations to support our event,” explained Venema.

Mesabi Metallics contributed to the Fall themed festivities.

“Mesabi Metallics is proud to help grow the Greenway Area Community Fund,” said Mesabi Metallics President and C.O.O. Larry Sutherland. “It’s an honor to be a part of building the legacy that provides a lasting dividend to the Greenway area forever.”
